Netflix is making lots of medieval movies all of a sudden. Watched The King last night and I was pretty impressed (one reviewer called it "gorgeous and tedious"); it's pretty much a grittier retelling of Henry V (rather than the historical events upon which it is based).

I started watching this a few days ago but got sidetracked with other things...and then with the release of Disney+...so I finally finished it this evening. I don't know much about the time period to be able to judge the historical accuracy but as a movie it was interesting. Very gritty, brutal, battle scene.
